Overweight and Obesity
Obesity is common, serious and costly. In 2009-2010, more than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) were obese.
Good nutrition is vital to good health, disease prevention, and essential for healthy growth and development of children and adolescents.
One of the most highly effective preventive measures a mother can take to protect the health of her infant is to breastfeed.
Staying in control of your weight contributes to good health now and as you age.
